Play Balls!

nuke-laloosh-garter-beltA group of Italian researchers conducted a study on the correlation between sexual activity and competition. The only country who could get away with a study like this are the Italians and the French.

No matter what your coach tells you, having sex before competition doesn’t appear to harm an athlete’s performance.

They reviewed nine studies that examined the impact of sexual activity on sports performance, and their findings appear in the journal Frontiers in Physiology.

“Abstaining from sexual activity before athletic competition is a controversial topic in the world of sport,” lead author Laura Stefani said. “We show no robust scientific evidence to indicate that sexual activity has a negative effect upon athletic results,” she said.

Now they tell me! To think of all those times I abstained from sex during college lacrosse, high school track… and little league softball. I mean, I didn’t have opportunities to bang chicks in high school or college, but grade school? I could have cleaned up!

  1. I had three younger brothers and they certainly all believed in this. I’m guessing it was just another way for the parents to try and keep all those hormones in check during the teen years.


  2. Meetoo – Most guys believe in abstaining before games. I certainly did in college. It’s amusing to know this, like so many other scares of yesteryear, was completely inaccurate.
